As you know, you can reset an item's presentation settings from the menu "Presentation/Reset" in the content editor. Consider a situation where there are tons of items and sub-items, and you suddenly realize that you will need to configure some item level security settings. It would have been nice, if similar to presentation settings, there was a "reset" option for security settings as well, so that you only need to specify the needed security settings at the template standard values level and then propagate the configuration to the tons of items/sub-items. I am going to discuss that today.
Sitecore 9 makes it really easy to incorporate federated authentication into the admin panel. A large portion of the process simply involves a few configuration changes. Included as a part of these configurations are the group-to-role transformation mapping. The ease of these changes are nice, however adding a new role requires configuration changes, which means a deployment or (at the very least) an outage of the site. I recently incorporated federated authentication (via Okta) into a system, and was irked by this requirement. This subsequently drove me to add some logic to allow the group-to-role mappings to be configured within Sitecore.
